In On The Kill Taker is one of Fugazi's most shamefully overlooked works, too straightforward to appease their later fans and not punx enough to piss off a hardcore kid the way they like it. What you get instead is a furious dance: some of the band's catchiest cuts, including "Public Witness Programme", along with the usual gleeful fury.

9/10 Jack Customer review, 19th April 2015
With In On The Killtaker, Ian and Guy jettisoned the massive hooks and power riffs of their early albums and replaced them with something no less faithful to their hardcore roots but infinitely more experimental and considered. Stylistically you could argue this was the point at which Guy's influence began to be reflected equally to Ian's for the first time. Certainly there is more here that is reminiscent of Rites of Spring than there are echoes of Minor Threat. This is the album where Fugazi really matured.
